Item details


The plant was used medicinally by Native Americans to treat coughs, fevers, wounds, and diarrhea. The best time to harvest foliage to dry is when the flowers are just past full bloom, as the oil content in the leaves is the highest at that time, but they can be used at any time.

Perennial - zones 3 to 8

* Seeds per package - 100+
* Bloom Time - Summer thru Fall
* Bloom Color - Purple/Blue
* Size - 2' to 3' tall, upright
* Culture - Full sun, regular water but drought tolerant.
* Characteristics - Anise hyssop is a short-lived herbaceous perennial with blue flowers and fragrant foliage that can be used as an ornamental or in the herb garden.
* Special Features - The aromatic leaves have a licorice-like (anise) scent, and can be used in herbal teas, to flavor jellies or eaten fresh in small quantities, such as in a salad with other greens. The dried leaves can be used in potpourri. The unscented flowers are very attractive to bees – particularly bumblebees, butterflies, beetles and other insects that feed on the nectar or pollen, as well as hummingbirds.
* Germination - Anise hyssop is easily started from seed and often blooms the first year, but also can be propagated in spring or fall by division of plants that spread by rhizomes. Seeds need light to germinate, so barely cover the seeds. They should germinate in 1-4 weeks; cold, moist stratification improves germination.
